Lyrics

In one year I put a king on his throne
They all cheered but now I’m alone
In this cold cell, wasting away
Regardless of what these men say

I’m not a fighting machine
I’m not a princess or a queen
I’m compelled by what I’ve seen
In my visions and my dreams
I’m just a girl of nineteen

The same questions day after day
I give the same answers, they twist what I say
God grant me strength to deal with the pain
Your servants inflict in your name

I’m not a fighting machine
I’m not a princess or a queen
I’m overwhelmed by what I’ve seen
In my visions and my dreams
I’m just a girl of nineteen

The robes of the church
Clothe all manner of men
Faithless and unfit
They number my days
But I will not submit
I will not submit

(inspired by the life of Joan of Arc)
